Beneficiaries under the N-Power Programme who were omitted from the payment of their stipends have been directed by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government to report to their state focal persons for verification and revalidation.

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, made this call on Tuesday.

Umar-Farouq in her statement noted that issues dealing with stipends of some beneficiaries in batch A and B are almost being concluded.

The Minister further stated that investigations carried out by the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation following the omission of some N-Power beneficiaries from payment of stipends revealed that some were receiving salaries from other Federal Government agencies.
She disclosed that opportunity has been given to the affected beneficiaries to verify and re-validate their eligibility so that qualified beneficiaries could be paid for their participation in the N-Power Programme.

Beneficiaries are hereby directed to report to their State Focal Persons immediately with their bank account details, including bank statements from March 2020 to date, NYSC Discharge Certificates, birth certificates and other related screening documents,” Umar-Farouq added.

She said the deadline for verification would be October 13, 2020.

The minister said beneficiaries who fail to attend the verification exercise would forfeit their stipends.
